I'm using Windows 7 as the operating system. I would like to use a standard batch script for the solution if possible, not powershell or vbs.

I'm not sure what switch to use to only get a readout of the files with the "dir" command in the directory including the size & date.

the /B following the dir command lists how I want it to look but there is no size & date following the file names. Please see the 2 examples below.

I have tried several combination of switches and I'm having problems. Can you help
